ANG AntiVirus 09

ANG AntiVirus 09 is a clone of the rogue anti-spyware programs called Antivirus 2010 and Total Virus Protection. This program is classified as a rogue because it uses false advertising in the form of a fake online scanner, Trojans to display fake security alerts, and false scan results to make you think you are infected. ANG AntiVirus can be encountered via online advertisements that pretend to be anti-malware scanners. When the advertisement has finished it will display a list of infections that are supposedly on your computer and state that you should install ANG AntiVirus 09 in order to protect yourself. This program is also promoted through the use of Trojans that display fake alerts on your computer stating that there is some sort of security risk and that you should install ANG AntiVirus 09 to protect your computer.
